The last weekend before school started we had no plans..... until our friends from Seattle called and said, "Hey, we're camping at Wanapum State Park, why don't you come meet us?"
We said......."OK!" and off we drove about an hour north to their campsite on the Columbia River with a nice little beach. It was plenty hot, so after a picnic lunch we headed into the river to cool off.
Ash didn't love the cold water.....as you can tell.
He just wanted the men to hold him. He LOVES men for some reason, and warmed right up to Tony.
Tony was Jason's TAC officer in the police academy. They hit it off and have been friends ever since. His wife Laura is awesome and we visit them whenever we go to Seattle.
The water felt good, but Ash and I stayed mostly dry. It was the kind of water you have to get used to, and you can't explain that to an 18 month old.
Hunter and McKay had a great time and we had to pull them away from the sand which was quite nice even though it just looks like dirt here.
So glad the Nowacki's called us for one last summer outing! We also visited the Ginko State Park Petrified Forest since we were in the vicinity. I forgot to take pictures, but it was cool to see the museum and look at the petrified wood. I didn't go in the gift shop because I don't think I could have resisted buying some. Next time.
